No matter how big and bad your vehicle is or how simply stock it is, Trail 11 in Rausch Creek Off Road Park is a must-do trail. You will meander around a glacial depression chock full of trees, and plenty of small obstacles and terrain features will keep you interested in the road while taking in the sights of the surrounding woodlands. It is the easiest of the three Jeep Badge of Honor Trails in the Park and suitable for any beginner. Don't limit yourself to this trail because the Park consists of 3,000 acres with over 80 miles of trails for almost every type of 4WD vehicle, from stock to pro rock buggies.

Trail Difficulty and Assessment

Trail Navigation

Trail 11 provides a mix of terrain with road surfaces from hard-packed dirt, a little mud, and minor rocks. It is bidirectional, so you can run this one in either direction. There is only one significant obstacle at Waypoint 9 that is optional. The trail will create a loop connecting many of the area's blue, red, and black trails. All of which are well-signed. Suitable for stock high-clearance four-wheel-drive vehicles. Listed below are the essential cliff notes to be aware of before your visit. Check In Upon arrival, you must check in at the office to sign waivers and get wristbands and the appropriate sticker for your windshield. Don't Go Alone The Park requires group sizes of two or more, no solo travel. Cost and Fees All persons 16 and older, whether drivers or passengers, must become park members, which is called an "annual pass" The membership costs $50 and is good through 12/31 of the year you join (those joining Oct-Dec will be good through 12/31 of the following year). Once you are a member, the daily entrance fee for the vehicle and its driver is $65. Passengers are $20 each (the $20 is waived the day a passenger pays for their membership). Children 15 and younger are free. Included in your daily fees is primitive camping (reservation required). For our frequent visitors, they offer a Frequent Driver Pass for $260, which is suitable for five visits, or a Season Pass for $600. These passes are seasonal, running through 12/31 of the year you purchase (those purchased Oct-Dec will be good through 12/31 of the following year). Map Colors While the Park depicts this as a green trail, green is not the color used by Trails Offroad. Our 3 rated trails use orange on our 10-point rating scale. The Park describes its map colors as follows: Green = Easiest Blue = Intermediate Blue-Black (Purple) Black = Hard Red = Extreme Open Hours Fridays 8 to 4 (wheel til dusk) Saturdays 8 to 5 (wheel til dusk) Sundays 8 to 5 Open Memorial Day, Labor Day, July 4th, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day.

Fun trail at Rausch. Some deep water getting there if it rains, but the flexy part is fun and worth it.

Trail 11 was one of my favorite trails at Rausch Creek. It had just a little bit of everything. I would recommend this trail to anyone new to offroading and looking to test their skills!

Super fun trail and very scenic. We ran it twice while visiting the park. The JL on 37s had zero issues on this trail. The twisty obstacle was the fun!
